Fancy Friday- Trick or Treats


Time for our monthly Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Seriously can't believe there are only 2 more Fancy Fridays before we head in to 2016- EEK!
Well before I freak out about that let's live in the moment &  talk about spookworthy treats-

I wanted to make some cute toothpick toppers that could adorn a batch of yummy cupcakes then I remembered the cutest little box I received from my uber fabulous friend, Jeanna Bohannon! So I played off her idea & stuck my toothpicks right in to the top of the little mini treat boxes!

I love these type of "non-destructive" treats- no need to tear open anything, just pull the pick out & gently open the box & embark on a mini sugar rush. Lol!

Alrighty well it's time to click the next button & see what spooktacular treat Cathy has created!

Stampin Up Artisan Design Team- Year End

Wow! Can't believe how quickly the time has come to say good bye- our reign as the official Artisan Design Team has come to an end. Please pass the tissues...
It's been an amazing adventure & I will forever be grateful for the opportunity & the many friends I have made along the way.
Since I can not put it off any longer I guess we should get to it-

We were assigned the Sparkly Seasons stamps & dies. I L-O-V-E the die cut words that come with the set so of course I had to use those on my final projects-

(witches hat turned to a pilgrim hat!)
Just in case you're wondering how I made the hook: I used the handheld hole punch & then just made two little snips. Easy Peasy!

It's Treasure Hunt time!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Simple Christmas Gratitude

I don't know about you but I find after I have stamped a ton of Christmas cards to send to friends & family I am ready for a long winters nap, Lol! No but in all seriousness I really don't feel like creating a whole bunch more fancy cards so soon. Sometimes I forget that it really doesn't have to be fancy to express your gratitude, plus who keeps the thank you cards they get from Aunt Betty saying they loved the fruit basket you sent...SO on that note how about mass producing something like....
Yep, I can even hand my girls the supplies & let them crank these babies out!
I totally love the look of that awesome deer & he looks amazing paired with this sentiment!
Ok now that I have showed you a way to save your sanity, lets hop along & see what fancy things the rest of the team has created :)

Stampin up Artisan Blog Hop- Into the Woods

As the 2014-2015 ADT prepares to end our reign in just 2 short weeks- this post features the very last project that we have created for Stampin Up's corporate Facebook page. Boo Hoo...
While I go get a box of tissues, you can take a little trip Into the Woods to see my creations-
Again because of the move I'm working with limited supplies but I definitely needed some thank you cards to send out so I made it happen.
Each card is pretty much the same I just alternated the DSP patterns to give each one a unique look. This my favorite thing to do when I need cards quick!
Ok I know the rest of the Team has some knock your socks off eye candy waiting for you so go ahead & click on over to visit Sarah!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop-Might be a little acorny..

Welcome to this weeks ADT Blog Hop!
It's been really inspiring to see so many awesome ideas with just one product suite & today we are working with the Acorny Thank You products.
I can't remember if I told you or not but we are moving! For those that follow me on Instagram you already knew that & I loved the comment that we were moving so I could have a bigger craft room. LOL! It will have its perks that's for sure. Anyway we have been packing, putting our stuff in storage, & doing a bunch of repairs to get the place ready to hit the market.
Well my point is most of my craft room is in storage -Boo Hoo- so I had to use my limited supplies to come up with a card for today...
I had so many ideas & I would go to get something only to realize it had already been packed. But I did manage to find a hodge podge of stuff to finish my card with. :)
Now we get to go see what the rest of the team has made with full access to their creation stations!
(I will be living vicariously Lol)
